We are a grassroots initiative supporting emerging creatives, founded by self-taught and self-employed photographers and directors.
We recognize the financial, institutional, and cultural barriers of breaking into creative industries because we’ve experienced it firsthand.
We know that formal training is not the only indicator of experience and talent.
We understand that representation in casting talent but not in decision-making roles and crew is merely tokenism.
We have had enough of “listening and learning” and want to see actionable change.
We believe in connection and community over competition.
